Lot of sources connected to WMU saying that it's going to happen, but much like the other "realists", I'll just wait and see until it's official.

I've never seen him in action, nor read too much about him, but the desperation in this thread is contagious. Please sign so LGW can turn on you in a month.

Frank, you and I have had our differences, but I agree with you.

 

The Wings playoff streak is nice, but I would rather see the Wings really compete every few years than just make the playoffs and die in the first or second round every year.  The problem is that Wings fans as a whole would hate to see them tank for 2-3 years just to rebuild.

 

My thoughts as well, the streak is nice and all but really it is just a number. I'd rather see this team in the hunt for highend UFAs and the cup again in the not so distant future, instead of making the playoffs and getting bounced in round one or not later than round two, thats just not RedWings Style.

 

Differences are part of discussion boards :) as long as both side respect each other no worries here ^^

 

Can't believe DeKeyser is getting blamed for taking his time, it is a huge decision so for sure he will go through all the offers pros and cons and when he is ready, he or maybe his agent are going to anounce it. GMs passed on this guy in the draft every time so let him enjoy his "revenge" a bit.

:lol: it's funny because it's true. Let's keep expectations realistic guys even if he does wind up signing here, the guy has 0 NHL experience and most likely isn't going to be very impactful from the get go.

Thats why he is considered a prospect, it would be nice to have and develop him :-)

I don't think it's unrealistic for him to step into the NHL and be an effective player.  The problem is, he's not a point producing defenseman so he's not going to show up on the score sheet much, which will draw the ire of some fans.  By all accounts he's a good physical shutdown guy, more of a Dan Girardi than a Justin Schultz.  So if people hold him to the wrong standard then they'll definitely be disappointed.

Supposely really good.  He's a good skater, decent size, and real long reach.

Very, very big point here to be taken. Some may think he's going to be shiny and flashy, but that is not Danny DeKeyser. You don't hear much of his name because he doesn't make much mistakes. He plays a very basic game, but as a defensive defensemen, that's an outstanding quality. Of course you'll recognize when he makes a shut-down move, but many of the times, plays are forgotten on the defensive side of the game.

I also like how he is known for having a hard, accurate shot. Be nice to have point shots that actually hit the net!

That was Nick Lidstrom. Nothing flashy with him, but he did all the basics with excellence. 

 

Not saying Dekeyser is that though

Supposedly his shot is very good, however he hasn't produced a lot of points at any level.  Might be because his team wasn't all that great, but his NCAA numbers are a far cry from Brendan Smith or Justin Schultz.

Also, I just want to point out that we are long over-due for some flow on the back-end and this beauty brings it.

 That is what Jakub Kindl looks like to me. He looks more like Lidstrom than anyone. Dekeyser would be a more like a Hatcher. He's a big guy with a ton of reach.

Boston's GM still thinks Iginla is going there lol

This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

Is this true that he was never drafted? (Sorry, not up on all the news concerning this guy).

 

So, just to stir things up, if he had been drafted by a team, would he have been able to stiff them and sign elsewhere like Shultz did to Anaheim last year?  Can you imagine how we would feel if the Wings had drafted him, then Kenny tells him he has to earn his way into a playing spot, he holds out and signs elsewhere!  Get out the tar and feathers, boys!

Stevie Y will not be getting DeKeyser

 

Confirmed #tblightning are no longer in the running for WMU free agent Dman Danny DeKeyser, signing of Sustr pretty much took care if that
